Right now Lowell. You know what you're getting with him (watch the slow second half though).

It's real close though.

Neither Reyes or Matsui are lead-off hitters. And they won't become lead-off hitters by simply batting them first.

Unless something goes horribly wrong Wright should be batting somewhere around 3rd by the end of the season. But they are not (I don't think) going to put that much pressure on him so early. I would expect Wright to start the year batting 6th. I would be surprised if this is not the opening day lineup:

1 Reyes
2 Matsui
3 Beltran
4 Piazza
5 Floyd
6 Wright
7 Cameron/Diaz
8 Mienkishnizzle

Lowell's numbers in the first part of the year are so good. Its very hard to pass that up. Maybe you can use that as bait for a nice trade around the all-star break.

Close, I mean Real close. With Wright we can only assume that he'll do well based on last year's stats. With Lowell you pretty much know what you're getting. You already know about his late fade that could ruin your playoff run. Why would you draft Lowell knowing you'll need to trade him because of his 2nd half slumps?

CubsFan already mentioned the big difference though; Stolen Bases. Even if all else is close to even, Wright will far excede Lowell's totals in Steals. At least to the point where you should rank Wright over Lowell on your cheatsheets.

However, I would not hesitate to draft Lowell if he's still floating around later on in my draft. He probably wouldn't be my primary 3B. I'd plug him in somewhere when he's hot.

Couldn't help but notice this. :-D :-b Anyway, I would take the known quantity for this year in Lowell. However, it could indeed be Wright over Lowell in the future.
